Biography

Née à Montréal, elle fait ses études au collège Villa Maria (promotion 1992) et au collège Jean-de-Brébeuf. Elle entreprend ensuite des études en lettres modernes à la Sorbonne et de théâtre à l’École Michel-Granvale de Paris.

Auteure et comédienne, elle écrit plusieurs pièces de théâtre, dont Des fraises en janvier, créée à Carleton, puis produite à Montréal par le théâtre d’Aujourd’hui et reprise par la Compagnie Jean-Duceppe. Également produite en traduction anglaise au pays et en allemand, la même pièce est également traduite en scots par Rona Munro . Cette nouvelle création de Strawberries in January est présentée lors de l'édition 2006 du Festival d'Édimbourg.

La jeune dramaturge voit ensuite se multiplier les productions de ses pièces, dont Au bout du fil au Théâtre de Quat'sous, et la production du Théâtre Le Clou de L’Héritage de Darwin, un texte pour jeune public, à la Maison Théâtre de Montréal.

Au Nouveau Théâtre Expérimental, Évelyne de la Chenelière crée trois spectacles : Henri & Margaux et Nicht retour, Mademoiselle, conçus avec Daniel Brière, et Aphrodite en 04, conçu avec le regretté Jean-Pierre Ronfard. Cette dernière pièce est reprise sous le titre Désordre public à l’Espace Go en avril 2006.

Bashir Lazhar, présentée au Théâtre d'Aujourd'hui, fait aussi l'objet de traductions anglaise et allemande, puis d'une adaptation cinématographique par Philippe Falardeau sous le titre Monsieur Lazhar, film qui est nommé à la cérémonie des Oscars 2012.

La pièce Chinoiseries, montée en juillet 2005 à Carleton, dans une mise en scène de la chorégraphe Catherine Tardif, fait l'objet d'une tournée au printemps 2007. Ronfard nu devant son miroir, pièce-délire en hommage à Jean-Pierre Ronfard, est présentée en 2011 au Nouveau Théâtre Expérimental ; La Chair et autres fragments de l'amour, pièce inspirée du roman Une vie pour deux de Marie Cardinal, en 2012, à l'Espace Go.

Lumières, lumières, lumières, montée par Denis Marleau en 2014, à l'Espace Go, est une adaptation-hommage du roman Vers le phare (To the Lighthouse) de Virginia Woolf. La trame dramatique de la pièce reprend les seuls personnages de Mrs.

In Montreal, an elementary school teacher hangs herself. Bashir Lazhar, an Algerian immigrant, then offers his services to replace her, claiming to have taught in his home country. Desperate to fill the position, the principal takes him at his word and gives him the job. He gets to know his students despite the cultural gap evident from the very first day of class and despite his difficulty adapting to the school system's constraints. As the children try to move on from their former teacher's suicide, nobody at the school is aware of Bashir's painful past, or his precarious status as a refugee. His wife, who was a teacher and writer, died along with the couple's daughter and son in an arson attack. The murderers were angered by her last book, in which she pointed a finger at those responsible for the country's reconciliation, which had led to the liberation of many perpetrators of huge crimes. The film goes on to explore Bashir's relationships with the students and faculty, and how the students come to grips with their former teacher's suicide. One student, Alice, writes an assignment on the death of their teacher, revealing the deep pain and confusion felt by each of the students.

The film cuts between two seemingly unrelated stories. One, set in present-day Montreal, stars Kevin Parent as Antoine, a successful club DJ torn between his new girlfriend Rose (Évelyne Brochu) and his still-complicated relationship with his ex-wife Carole (Hélène Florent); the other, set in 1960s Paris, stars Vanessa Paradis as Jacqueline, the fiercely protective single mother of Laurent (Marin Gerrier), a child with Down syndrome who has a crush on Véro (Alice Dubois), a friend and companion who also has Down syndrome. The film builds toward the revelation of how the two stories are linked: after Jacqueline, Laurent, and Véro are killed in a car accident, Carole, Antoine, and Rose are their subsequent reincarnations.

Jean-Marc Leblanc est un gratte-papier à la vie insignifiante dont la femme et les filles se désintéressent. Il se rattrape dans son monde imaginaire où il se voit tantôt couvert de lauriers, au sens propre comme au figuré (en puissant empereur romain, en romancier lauréat de grands prix littéraires), tantôt en vaillant chevalier avec les plus belles femmes du monde à ses pieds.

Viktor Navorski (Tom Hanks), a traveler from the nation of Krakozhia, arrives at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport, only to find that his passport is suddenly no longer valid due to the outbreak of a civil war in his homeland. As a result, the United States no longer recognizes Krakozhia as a sovereign nation, and he is not permitted to either enter the country or return home as he is now stateless. Due to his inability to communicate in proper English, US Customs and Border Protection seizes his passport and airline ticket.
